Bachelor of Science in Information (BSI) students

The Bachelor of Science in Information is an upper-level undergraduate degree; you’ll complete it in your junior and senior years at U-M. Students from all sorts of personal and educational backgrounds decide to enroll in the BSI program -- people with little to no programming experience to tech wizards; people interested in humanities to those interested in medicine and more ... These Faces of UMSI profiles will give you an introduction to some of the exceptional personalities in our BSI program. Read about what brought these undergraduate students to U-M, how they discovered UMSI and the BSI, their most valuable experiences and opportunities, and what they envision doing with their degree down the line.

Scroll to the bottom of the page to learn about how some of our BSI alumni got started on paths to careers in data science, marketing, UX design, product management and more. (Profiles are not routinely updated post-publication.)
